The Art of Atari by Tim Lapetino

therealataricoverIf you were that kid that grew up with the Atari 2600, you will definitely remember the distinctive box art packaging.  As a kid seeing the Atari video game box art made me go to my mom and say to her, “I want you to buy me those games!”  This October 2016, Dynamite and author Tim Lapetino take Atari fans on journey of video game artwork with The Art of Atari.

Space Invaders Bathroom

Video games have invaded home decor. Not a totally new concept but the idea has mostly been isolated to the wallpaper in junior’s room. This, though, is the first time I have seen video game art placed in a bathroom. On top of that, it’s Space Invaders made with bathroom tiles! I can’t wait until someone comes up with a cool 8-bit Super Mario design done in tiles.

Bad-@$$ Videogame Room

Really? An Atari Jaguar??? Didn’t it only have like 3 games? LoL.

I am not a hardcore gamer but I am definitely a gamer. The first ever video game that I played was Pong (so u can probably guess how old I am). Then I went through the Atari, Nintendo, Playstation, etc. So when I saw this picture, all I can say was AWESOME. Also this is not some non-functional museum piece – all the systems are plugged in and ready to go! Can you imagine how cool it’d be to just pick out a game on the left hand side and turn on any system and play it?! It’s safe to say, if that did happen, I could probably then die a happy man.
